An English Girl In New York

The Rack Shack

Hello Darlings,

It's a beautiful week in NYC. Spring has blissfully arrived like a drag queen breezing into a party "I'm here divas, get your hotpants on!".

I noticed a new store had opened up in my Bushwick hood recently called The Rack Shack. The store sells a curious combination of underwear/nightware and sneakers. The owner, Laura, is from Amsterdam and is skilled at sourcing underwear in hard to find sizes, making this store a pilgrimage spot for those woman large of breast and small of back, or vice versa. She also sells these AWESOME light-up sneakers. I was stopped about twenty times in the ten minutes I was wearing them. Forget Tinder - buy a pair of these badboys. 

In this post, I am wearing one of her vintage-style onesies. Here it is kiddos.

#1 Wear with coloured heels and carry a vintage parasol for old movie chic.

#2 Feeling a little chilly? Throw over the most over-the-top coat you own. This one is Betsy Johnson that I picked up in a thrift store. Add flatforms to keep the look modern.

#3 Add the aforementioned trainers/sneakers and add a statement jacket. Keep the look cohesive with a black and gold belt.

What did I tell you - people cannot get enough of them!

Thank you to Laura at The Rack Shack and of course to the man, the legend, Denton Taylor for the photography.

See you all on Friday xoxo
